11.13 Part C

Postby Tess McDaniel 1F » Sun Nov 26, 2017 4:02 pm

When writing reaction quotient expressions for homogeneous reactions in the gas phase is it better to write Q in terms of partial pressure of concentrations? For example in problem 11.13 part c there are no values given so it's not obvious.

Hi,

For reactions in the gas phase I think it is better to write Q in terms of partial pressures.

Gases are pretty much always as partial pressure, and solutes (aq) more often appear in concentration (mol/L). Usually, the only time gases are written in mol/L are when they give you moles and liters in the equation.
